Shozaburo is one of the oldest and most prestigious scissors companies in Japan. The technology of their scissors is from making Japanese Samurai swords before the decree banning the wearing of swords. Shozaburo has been known throughout the world for their beauty and sharpness. How the time-honored techniques used in the forging of Japanese Samurai swords, repeatedly pounding and shaping red-hot iron, have been preserved and adopted in the production of modern day cutlery is a truly fascinating story. Shozaburo has applied this traditional Japanese craftsmanship to the production of quality shears. Shears are delicate instruments that relay on the harmonious meshing of two blades. For this reason, they select only the finest materials for their shears. They then thoroughly forge, precisely sharpen, and carefully polish these materials. Every step taken in producing the Shozaburo line of shears combines traditional Japanese craftsmanship developed over the years with the most modern cutlery production technology. This harmony of bringing together both the traditional and the modern resonates through every pair of Shozaburo shears. Shozaburo has maintained an unwavering dedication to producing the best possible shears. Feel the reliability and traditional craftsmanship every time you use your Shozaburo shears.
